OMAHA, Neb. -- LSU freshman Mikie Mahtook, who had the game-winning hit in the 11th inning of the Tigers' 7-6 win over Texas on Monday night, delivered another big hit in Wednesday night's deciding game of the CWS championship series.

Mahtook hit Texas reliever Brandon Workman's full-count pitch into the right-center gap for a double, scoring Jared Mitchell from second for a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth inning at Rosenblatt Stadium. Mitchell, whose three-run homer put LSU ahead 3-0, led off the inning with a walk and moved to second on a passed ball.

Mahtook's RBI double chased Workman, who had been pretty solid the previous three innings. He was replaced by Austin Dicharry.
